Beach trip again

 I had the privilege of going a beach trip last week to Carolina Beach to get photographs of coastal birds, the beach, sunrises, sunsets and the moon rise which was cool to photograph at the beach.

This is a seagull that is eating a fish that he dragged along the beach which i got several photographs of this seagull eating this fish and sometimes he threw it in the air , which was cool to see and photograph it. It was very cool to witness and photograph this as it was happening. The photographs of the seagull eating the fish came out awesome .

The next shore bird I photographed was a sanderling trying to find something for him to eat or catch. It was hard to catch this sanderlings at first because the move so darn fast near the shore of the ocean. I kept looking for movement and starting tracking down the movement and catching the sanderlings doing many different things on the beach.

This another variety of a sandpiper which I am trying to identify. It was near the shore a lot. So if you have any clues what kind of sandpiper this might be let me know.

The last photograph I did at the beach during that day was a moonrise that I photographed over the ocean I have not done this kind of photograph in a long time at carolina Beach.. Otherwise I had a great beach trip photographing different things on the beach and had a wonderful vacation.

Right Sunrise conditions at Jordan Lake plus good birds

Today I did a sunrise shot with my photography mentor who seemed to be chimping some open his photos today.

This is a Great Blue Heron I took during the sunrise at Jordan Lake Today. We spotted a pair of them doing territorial stand offs which was impressive to photograph today as well.

This was the when the territorials between the two Great Blue Herons were fighting between which territory belonged to them. I got many good shots of this.

This is also a pair of Black Voltures that seemed to be enjoying this beautiful morning grooming and just hanging around the side of Jordan Lake which I also got many shots of them doing their grooming styles for the day.

The other photos I got included a swallowtail butterfly, bees  and a new stump I got there today.
Here is a bee on the same flower that before the swallowtail was on.

Hatching of Prey Mantis!!

Hey Hey its AL back with an exciting news from my house today!  I have successfully, I have had 1 prey mantis egg sack today that hatched finally . I put 4 up in February 2020 and one hatched today which was amazing to watch and I got many pictures of them hatching from the egg sack today.
